Movie trivia, advanced level

My sister Peg wrote and emailed out this evil, mean, diabolical movie quiz. Even though I've seen all the movies involved, my answer for half the questions was, "Arrrgh, I should know this, I hate you!" See how you do. Answers to be posted tomorrow--or Google 'em if you can't wait.



1)What was the name of the man Cat Ballou shot and for whom she was
sentenced to be hanged?

2)What was the name of the film producer who took Seth away in Cold
Comfort Farm?

3)What was the name of the book written by Baron Von Frankenstein in
Young Frankenstein?

4)What were the words branded on Mongo's Ox in Blazing Saddles?

5)What is the full name of the character of Partner in Paint Your Wagon?

6)What was the year which appears with "Oregon Territory" at the
beginning credits of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?

7)What was the name of the Prince of Potzdorf in The Great Race?

8)What was the name of the play that student Clifford Anderson wrote in

9)What was the name of the bumbling military officer who led the small
army to invade America in The Mouse that Roared?

10)What was the name of the Space Ship on Galaxy Quest?

QUOTES: 1 point given for each the name of the movie, the character(s),
and the actor(s)

11) 5 possible points
A: I were my father, I'd have you tortured.
B: No. If you were your father, I doubt very much if I would have kissed you.

12) 3 possible points
A: "Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to discover that he had been
transformed into a giant cockroach." Nah, it's too good.

13) 3 possible points
A: We consider ourselves bi-coastal if you consider the Mississippi River
one of the coasts.

14) 3 possible points
A: You are a wise man, Professor, for someone who has not yet lived even a
single lifetime.

15) 3 possible points
A: Son, if you're only as happy as your mother and I have been... my heart
bleeds for you.

16) 3 possible points
A: Luther said I could learn some things from you. I already know how to

17) 5 possible points
A: Don't you think that idea is a little half-baked?
B: Oh no, Dad, it's completely baked.

18) 3 possible points
A: It wouldn't be terrible at all. It would be a miracle. Not to mention
the money I'd save on epsom salts and ace bandages.

19) 5 possible points
A: Tell me the truth, am I a good actor?
B: As long as I'm working for Monumental Pictures, you're the greatest of
'em all.

20) 5 possible points
A: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
B: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.

Wah, I know barely any! My movie knowledge is too genre-centered. Poo.

It isn't really fair of me to inflict this quiz on the world at large, since she chose movies that were popular in my family specifically. And even THEN I could only get a smallish percentage right. Ack.

Bah! The only ones I've seen (and therefore have a snowball's chance at answering) are 10) on the Trivia (I want to say The Legacy?) and 12) on the quotes (The Producers; Max Bialastock; and assuming we're talking about the musical production and not the original Mel Brooks [which given you guys is a brash assumption, I know] Nathan Lane).
Oct. 6th, 2006 06:56 pm (UTC)
Hey, it's a start! Apparently the ship is the NSEA Protector, which I didn't remember. And yeah, the quote is The Producers; both versions are Mel Brooks really, so I figure either Nathan Lane or Zero Mostel is fair.

Funny given your "Sir Charles Phantom" LJ title that #11 didn't ring a bell. Mind you, I didn't get it either; but it is from the original Pink Panther. The Princess and Sir Charles. Your LJ might refer to the recent version, though, which I haven't seen and thus can't compare against the original for similar lines.

Wash your mouth with soap! I haven't seen the new one; Peter Sellers is and will always be the ONLY Inspector Clouseau to me. However, I'm really more familiar with Return of the Pink Panther than I am with the first one (which I didn't find nearly as funny, truth be told, though granted I was MUCH younger when I saw it).
Oct. 8th, 2006 06:31 pm (UTC)
Hehehe. I must agree--no one should ever attempt to be Clouseau, after Sellers. I love Steve Martin, but really. Nobody.

I haven't seen the sequels in a while. Must add to Netflix queue...

Those were the only two I got, as well, though I think "RLS Legacy" is from Treasure Planet, as opposed to Galaxy Quest.

You're right! Thank you. I wondered where I came up with that ship name.

Is Singing in the Rain

Donald O' Conner as Cosmo Brown
Gene Kelley as Don Lockwood

#17 is driving me crazy. I'm googling it.

The Great Race! That is one of the best films in the history of the world.
Oct. 8th, 2006 06:32 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes it is! :) Push the button, Max.

If you haven't yet, you might rent 'Some Like It Hot.' Same duo--Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon--in one of the greatest comedies ever. And with Marilyn Monroe as eye candy instead of Natalie Wood. (A fair trade, most would argue...)

Arg! I recognize most of them and will probably wake up at random times in the night tonight remembering them.

Did *it* see *you*?
Hm. The movie producer in Cold Comfort Farm was Mr. Earl P. Neck, but I'm cheating; I have a copy of the book. Old favorite.
And I don't know what it says on the side of Mongo's ox, but I just watched Blazing Saddles for the first time, and omg the slash. I mean, it's everywhere. To the point where the moviemakers have noticed it themselves. Admittedly Gene Wilder has the Midas Touch with slashiness, but even so? He and the Sheriff. Are so married. OMG.

Re: Did *it* see *you*?
Heh! I saw all those Gene Wilder movies when I was too young to think of slash, but you have a point. They subtly played up the "strangely close" buddy relationships of Western movies, in 'Blazing Saddles.' After all, Sheriff Bart obviously wasn't going to stay with Lily von Schtupp. ;) Then again, the boys were nowhere near as slashy as the totally flagrant Hollywood guys they stumble upon, rehearsing their dance number "The French Mistake." Hee.

Oy. Like you, I'm having many, "DAMN, I knew this before I got old and senile" moments. I think Mongo's Ox said "yes" and "no," Partner's name is Sylvester Newel (a good name for a farmer!), and the GQ Spaceship was the Protector. I assume the quote from Metamorphosis came from "The Producers" and was spoken by Max (Zero Mostel), and the mileage quote sounds like something from "Indiana Jones."

I'm especially annoyed with myself for not remembering Viktor's book's name, though I can still hum the "Transylvanian Lullabye."

We should create an equally difficult quiz with which to torment your sister!
Oct. 12th, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC)
Great job! Hah, I will definitely have to get on her case for the "one L in Newel" issue.

The Transylvanian Lullabye is a lovely little piece. If you didn't know the film, you'd wonder why it made people giggle. :)
